Palin fires back at 'blue-blood' Barbara Bush

By Matt DeLong

Updated 11/24/2010 at 1:44 p.m.

In an interview Wednesday with conservative radio host Laura Ingraham, Sarah Palin fired back at former first lady Barbara Bush, opting to make a class issue out of Bush's comments earlier in the week. Bush told CNN's Larry King in an interview that aired Monday that she hoped Palin would stay in Alaska. From Palin's interview with Ingraham:

"I don't want to concede that we have to get used to this kind of thing, because I don't think the majority of Americans want to put up with the blue-bloods -- and I want to say it will all due respect because I love the Bushes -- the blue-bloods who want to pick and choose their winners instead of allowing competition," Palin said.

Palin's comments begin at around the 1:30 mark in the clip below.

Palin is no stranger to class warfare. Last year, when Caroline Kennedy was mulling a Senate bid to replace Hillary Rodham Clinton, who vacated her seat to become Secretary of State, Palin suggested that Kennedy would be treated with "kid gloves" because of her iconic last name.

"I've been interested to see how Caroline Kennedy will be handled and if she will be handled with kid gloves or if she will be under such a microscope," Palin told conservative filmmaker John Ziegler.
"I think that as we watch that we will perhaps be able to prove that there is a class issue here also that was such a factor in the scrutiny of my candidacy versus, say, the scrutiny of what her candidacy may be," she added.

As Sen. John McCain's running mate during the 2008 presidential campaign, Palin promised to represent the "Joe Six-Pack American," prompting New York Times columnist David Brooks to devote an entire column to Palin's propensity for playing the class card.

Also of note in the Ingraham interview, Palin took another shot at the Bush family.

Palin also suggested that the Bushes upper-class status had contributed to "the economic policies that were in place that got us into these economic woeful times."

Original post:

In an interview with Larry King set to air Monday, former first lady Barbara Bush said she hopes former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin chooses to stay in Alaska.

"I sat next to her once, thought she was beautiful," Bush said. "And I think she's very happy in Alaska -- and I hope she'll stay there."

Palin has been increasingly vocal about her possible future plans in recent days. In an interview with the New York Times Magazine published this week, Palin said she is "engaged in the internal deliberations" about a potential 2012 bid for the presidency. She said in an interview with Barbara Walters last week that she thinks she could beat President Obama.

Also of note in the Larry King interview, former President George H.W. Bush said he is "confused" by the tea party, adding that he doesn't "know what it really is." Still, he said, "some of [their] ideas make a lot of sense."

I just thought I would would give some facts about the tax share the rich pay.
The amount of individual income taxes paid fell substantially in 2008, by $84 billion, and nationally, average income tax rates were at their lowest levels since 2004. The average tax rate for returns with a positive liability went from 12.68 percent in 2007 to 12.24 percent in 2008.

As the data below show, incomes reported by tax returns at the high end of the income spectrum plummeted from 2007 to 2008, as did their share of the nation's income and income taxes paid. In 2008, the top 1 percent of tax returns paid 38.0 percent of all federal individual income taxes and earned 20.0 percent of adjusted gross income, compared to 2007 when those figures were 40.4 percent and 22.8 percent, respectively. Both of those figures—share of income and share of taxes paid—were their lowest since 2004 when the top 1 percent earned 19 percent of adjusted gross income (AGI) and paid 36.9 percent of federal individual income taxes.

Each year from 2005 to 2007, the top 1 percent's constantly growing share of income earned and taxes paid set a record. That trend reversed in 2008. In fact, the income share for the top 1 percent of tax returns was lower in 2008 than in 2000, largely due to differences in capital gains.

Another indicator of this reversal in the income and tax shares of the top 1 percent is that during 2007, the top 1 percent had actually paid more in federal income tax than the bottom 95 percent, a comparison that was much remarked on a year ago. But the diminished income of the top 1 percent in 2008 means that the comparison no longer holds. During 2008, the bottom 95 percent (AGI under $159,619) paid 41.3 percent of the total collected, a larger share than the 38.0 percent paid by the top 1 percent (AGI over $380,354).

So what I find interesting is how do the supporters of Palin figure that it benefits them not to bring back the old tax rates for the rich. I guess it's logical morons take the bait. They would vote for her and let the wealthy skate. It makes complete sense now idiots bequeath idiots, keep drinking the kool aid instead of learning the truth.

I just love it that when liberals suggest that Palin shouldn't be running for President; that the right blasts them for not being Pro Free Speech. We just want qualified members of both parties running for president. The best thing Palin could do for the Republican party is support Ron Paul for president; and admit that she is not as qualified as he is. If it was Paul/? for 2012; I just might vote for the right.

I wish she would go back to Alaska, and it wouldn't bother me if she froze in the process. The world doesn't need Trojan horses in the form of a narcissistic, violence inciting woman, who after all, is only a good old boy in drag.

Anyone can become President, we have proved that in the past so what?
Sarah.. I would really appreciate it if you
would address the worlds daily problems off the cuff so we can know how you think on your feet, not canned answers as I am sure at least some of them are guided to you by others.
Where do you stand on defending S Korea? What should be done to the WikiLeaks founder when he appears in court?.Will you will be for or against abortion is a woman is raped and does not want to carry the child.
Would you be willing to be proactive and do a preemptive strike vrs ANY ENEMY who was about to bomb us? These and other questions need be answered before helping Polar bears so we know where you stand

"I find it hilarious that the same ignorant far left wing loons who voted for the least qualified and worst president in US history - a Jimmy Carter on steroids - get their shorts in a twist about Sarah Palin whose water they would be lucky to carry."

Jimmy Carter was VERY qualified. Just look at what he has done since leaving office. His problem was that he ran on an anti-establishment platform, got elected then BECAME the establishment. Only in that respect was he in over his head. He's gone on to be a brilliant world leader as well as VERY successful businessman. Simple Sarah is lucky if she has two brain cells which will work together to produce a valid thought.
Personally I hope she runs in 2012. The Dems need another 4 years to fix the mess Bush left us with.
Oh, and carry water for her... only if I could whack her with the bucket. LOL!!

Hum Ok that's funny. All the libs that thought the Bushes were idiots are now rushing to back her when she says something really idiodic like Palin should stay in Alaska. If Palin is such an idiot and so easy to beat in 2012 why wouldn't libs encourage her to run. If the Bushes were true Americans and loved freedom of speech why wouldn't they love to have a free exchange of ideas? After all Palin is an idiot and only serves to show us unwashed idiot masses her stupidity right? Saw a post earlier where women where going to be the ones to beat her. Why the fear from old school idiots like the Bushes.P.S. Never liked either Bush just thought they looked like mental giants next to Dukakis,Gore and Kerry. Me thinks there is something sadly awry with our political system when idiots like those 5 make the finals much less win.

Go Sarah! But Stay out of the Presidential Race. You do wonderful things with fund raising and lending your name to candidates that need help. Some nimrod will point out that Angle and the other pretty woman, O'Donnell lost, but you gave their campaigns life. The Bush's act like Blue Bloods, so good for kicking Barbara's wide body. Keep exposing the Obama's for what they are--rifraf, race-baiting, socialist-America haters--and their supporters along with them. You do a beautiful job of making the elite morons in this contry cry, so don't stop. Thanks Sarah. There is so much ugly on the lelt they can only hate the sunlight, common-sense, and beauty you bring to the fray.

My wish is that this comment is not seen as a personal attack but as a few simple but important facts.
1. I saw the VP candidate Palin on numerous news shows falter when asked very simple and standard questions. I saw that.
2. I saw the Gov. Palin falter when submitted to a difficult political environment and quit her job and constituents. I saw that.
3. I saw businesswoman Palin sign up for book deals and reality shows. I saw that.
4. As far as I know the wife and mom Palin still hasn't attended a HS graduation for any of her kids (yet).
My point is these are facts that can't be spun... cleansed... or laundered.
Truth is, if we applied these descriptions to any person that we knew in our community we probably wouldn't think very highly of them. We would probably accuse them of being dumb, weak, greedy and didn't have their own house in order.
This is a textbook case of a "Cult of Personality" if there ever was one.
Facts don't lie.
STOP THE MADNESS AND RESET ON PALIN.

wow.. i like that phrase....
of being privileged to carry
a pale of water for Palin...
She is indeed a pale full
of water for the Republicans
,,, a watershed moment in
Republican politics thanks
to Mr. John McCain.

Sara Palin's audacity in spite
of all the attacks on her
including that of Barbara Bush
should be admired!!! She is
definitely a spirited woman
and should be respected and
admired for her spirit.

she has a right to run for
president... and WE HAVE A
RIGHT to say she is not at
all qualified to represent
this diverse nation with
a narrow-minded view of
america. She simply has
no real consensus and does
not have as Murkowski so
aptly put it "the intellectual
curiosity" to build and lead
America!

There is nothing wrong
with a Sara Palin fan club!!
I am for her as an entertaining
celebrity... kind of like that
guy "Race Limbaugh" or somethng
like that...even he has a
Fan Club.

Barb is right that she would
be best enjoying and promoting
Alaska.

She has done very well in
causing a debate in the Republican
ranks... John McCain elevated
her to presidential politics

All I can say is that the
Far Right that so characteristically
includes racists; war mongers
hypocritical evangelicals and
insensitive conservative idealists
The Chickens have come home to roost"
in Sara Palin & The Tea Party.

Cluck cluck cluck cluck cluck....
She has a RIGHT to run and
represent her constituency...
Cluck cluck cluck cluck...
I am glad that so many see
through her agenda ... if there
is one other an agenda that is
about herself- Sara Palin.

I guess after all the high paid speeches, Fox News royalties, Television rights and book advances, Sarah, you could pretty much qualify as someone in the top 1% income bracket. If you want to stay Josephine six pack, time to give a little back to the community, Ms. Palin, cause while you are yapping about what it feels like to be one of us, recognise that you ain't doin much productive for this country, while you wait to be defeated in the next election.

Anyone who pays to read something she has written, or stands in line for a "look-see" is lacking in the common sense department. Palin has said "nothing" many times over and just attacks and gets cutesy and folksy--hallmarks of a superficial style. If Americans want to take some major steps backwards--she's your candidate.

The rich minority pay over 90% But you eggheads think that they arent paying their fair share... Ignorance is bliss isnt it?

Mrs. Bush's sour grapes reflect she has no leadership experience and her husband so failed in 8 years understudying Ronald Reagan to learn anything, that he dramatically raised taxes, began the massive down sizing of the military often blamed on Clinton, and was so disconnected from the real world he had not seen a retail price scanner. The Bushes from the early days of the nation come from the House of Lords mentality believing they're annointed Ivy League set has been divinely chosen to rule, rather than serve, aided by the 17th Amendment pulling power from the states. George the first was and remains a one-worlder and George the second could never find a veto pen or disconnect from his Rove and Cheney strings. No Bush sons or grandsons serve in our military. Even the royals do that.

Both Barbara and Laura were gracious first ladies and nothing more. They should allow that to be their legacies and not criticize the next generation of women regardless of party who are showing themselves as executives and leaders. Regarding the Palin seeing Russia comment, at that time Russia had invaded adjacent Georgia, bombing, raping and murdering as they love to do and Palin was pointing that out and how Alaska's proximity with its natural resources make it vulnerable. Of course George the 2d had looked into Vlad's eyes at the "ranch" and liked him and Obama will bow to him as soon as the opportunity presents itself. Obama and Medvedev are peas in a pod, Obama's strings pulled by Soros and Medvedev's by Putin. America can do better and must.

Someone tell me something: When Sarah Palin talks about the elites - does she mean intellectual elites or monetary elites?

When wannabe politicians pursue an "us" versus "them" strategy, it tends to backfire in the long run. IMHO, this country desperately needs a uniter not a divider because this country has many, many challenges ahead in the years to come.

She is the equivalent of an ambulance chasing lawyer. She supports establishment candidates if she can get anything out of them, and tea partiers if she can't. In both cases she plays the part.

Stupid disloyal hag. I, like Barbara Bush, wish she would just go the hell away. She stands for nothing of consequence, and has the experience of a local schoolboard member.

I almost can't wait for 2012. I hope that Palin runs for President. It will be great to see Mitt Romney or Newt Gingrich be able to rattle off answers (even if I disagree with the answer) while Palin has to literally read the notes in front of her. I can't wait for the debates!! Finally Palin will be able to sink her own ship.

@BryanW1, you might want to get informed yourself. Palin's comments about seeing Russia from Alaska are from an interview with Charles Gibson, not Saturday Night Live. Tina Fey, in a parody of Palin's comment to Gibson that Palin actually says: "They're our next door neighbors. And you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska."

Tina Fey, playing Palin says that she can see Russia from her back porch.

For jdVA and other poorly informed liberals:

The quote about seeing Russia from her house is from a Saturday Night Live sketch. Sarah Palin's statement during the campaign involved being the governor of a state which is in close proximity to Russia, and there are real issues that must be dealt with between Alaska and Russia. A great deal of the criticism against her is based on Palin bashing done by the media rather than actual facts and news. Using a quote from a Saturday Night Live sketch against her is a very silly example of this.

Ms. Palin has every reason to be defensive.

Her own decision, to reveal to the world her belief that her foreign affairs experience of viewing Russia from her house made her a good and qualified candidate for the office of vice president as well as president, revealed not only a serious lack of experience and education for those leadership positions, but a serious failure of judgment as well.

Whatever any individual thinks and believes about the abilities and qualifications of the Bushes and of Caroline Kennedy, not one of them would ever present themselves as serious candidates for higher political office based on their ability to see a foreign land mass from their homes.

Ms. Palin can complain in public as often and as much as she chooses, but that doesn't change the fact that she was never qualified to lead this nation. Because she still, to this day, lacks the judgment to see that fact clearly, she has not spent the interim time doing things that would actually give her the experience and education that she needs to qualify for those higher offices.

"Palin has no experience, the economy would be a mess"
Um Obama? Never ran ANYTHING....LOL
At least Sarah Palin ran a state, and then you bring up how she quit after being attacked repeatedly the left, both media and fellow politicians, to the point of almost losing all her funds, trying to defend herself...

I mean if you had someone in office who actually was half decent you might have an argument. But nothing you throw out there against her, can make a case that we have someone better in the office now....

Anyone with out their liberal beer goggles on could see that.....

If it comes down to it I would vote for her, but I hope someone with the same values and conservative vision, and love for this country runs instead, as she has already been smeared past the point of victory in my honest opinion....

Thanks to all of you....

Bottomline, she could do no worse than what we have, and easily do better in all truth, becasue she believe is fiscal conservative principle, and reducing government spending rather than spending us into a socialist oblivion....

Is there anything that she can address with an intelligent solution? Does she understand the issues that are addressing our country? NO! What are death panels? I guess that was one of the national health care issues she was able to discuss.
Why do these people, like Sarah Palin, think that they are speaking for the "majority of the American people"? She should run for the GOP or TEA party candidacy and get her behind beaten so badly that she goes running back to Denali with her tail between her legs.

It's rather hard to describe Sarah Palin in some words without falling into inaccuracies surrounding said description. You can't get by with calling her "unintelligent," because she obviously had enough gears running to make it to the mayoral seat in Wasilla, and the gubernatorial seat in Alaska. You can't accuse her of not having enough business sense, because look at the money she's raking in from the book deals, Fox News and her speaking engagements.

It is safe to say though,that Palin ia more than just a little misdirected in her goals as a public servant. For starters, how does she expect anyone to trust her in the nation's most powerful office, when she couldn't finish a term in her state's highest office? Then there is the notion that she is trying to splinter the Republican Party into factions, when what the Republicans really needs is someone to unite the party with common goals and agendas. The voters are a pretty fickle bunch these days, and some can say with good reason. It took two years after voters requested change and brought in Obama, that they requested more change and brought the other party back in again. Palin does not have the capabilities to lead a group of anyone and keep them on track for a four year period or longer. God forbid, should people lack enough sense to vote Palin into office, then this country will have more serious financial setbacks, plus a president who has no foreign policy experience, meaning our problems in third world countries will continue to worsen, and very little experience in domestic policies meaning no improvements in the job market, healthcare reform, particularly for the elderly,and no interest in deficit reduction. Am I wrong Sarah? If you wanted to prove me wrong, you would have done what Barbara Bush suggested that you do, (only I'll add more to it) by staying in Alaska, finishing out your term in Juneau, proving that you have your constituency's interest more at heart, than your own. Sad to say that we will never see that, because your motives have proven you to be more selfish than selfless. And more than just a handful of people are seeing the same thing I do. I'm a Moderate Democrat and after looking at what Palin and other Republicans are doing to their own party, I'm glad that I am.

It's really about time for the Tea Party to present itself in elections as a third party, either "officially" designated or otherwise (write-in). There are too many philosophical differences between the Tea Party and the GOP for Tea Party adherents to continue to run for political office as Republicans.

The US is facing so many challenges in the domestic and foreign affairs. The US is on the brink of economic disaster and it requires a President who is above all others. The enlightened and chosen one. A President whose IQ is above average. Her intelligence is suspect. I think she did not study geography in school. I wonder whether she knows where the capital city of North Korea and Afghanistan is!!!

How to be President? Maybe President of WAGs!

I'm no fan of Barbara Bush, BUT if ever a woman had NO CLASS, Sarah "Lipsticked Pitbull" Palin is the one! "dubya" showed America that you don't need "class" to become President of the United States. You don't even need brains. All you need is MONEY and "Handlers". Palin is CERTAINLY raking in the money now that she quit the Governorship that she complained she "couldn't afford". Sure, she's "savvy" and quick with the ad libs but the only REAL talent she has is the one for opening her mouth and putting her foot in it! (see her latest gaffe re: the North Koreans being "our allies" and other gems of Wisdom" that have dripped from her lips!)DUH? Brains aren't her strong suit either, but Class? she wouldn't recognize it if it jumped up and bit her on her derriere. She's a one trick pony who's way out of her league. Her fifteen minutes are almost over, although her children have been dragged into the spotlight so we're liable to be saddled with the Palin's for a few minutes more. If the Media would stop pandering to her limitless ego, she would slip back into the wilds of Wasilla, where she belongs.

Certainly Sarah Palin has a right to run for the Presidency, it's her right as a native born citizen. We as voters have the right to decide if we feel she is qualified. I for one do not think she is qaulified. She is and will always be for me a quiter. She quit the Governorship of Alaska when the state needed her the most. Whatever reasons she feels were the right ones were in fact very flimsy and rediculous. The GOP candidates in the upcoming Pres. Primaries will surely bring this up and she will be up against some very qualified candidates. Still the fact that her husband belonged to a group of Alaskans that wanted to break away from the Union and that she spoke to this group is troublesome to me. Also, it is obvious that her relationship with Fox is very profitable to her and as such she will try to hold out tossing her hat in the ring as long as possible to assure her income from Fox, who will have no choice but to cut her loose or face major ethical issues. I am sorry but as an Independant I find that this woman speaks in sound bites that are music to the ears of a very select few. I cannnot for the life of me really see or feel sincerity in her words which are very much scripted, you don'have to be a pundant to see that. No, Sarah Palin is a political aberration and not uncommon to our national political scene. If you sit and think about it do you really want this woman in charge of our nation when she obviously could not finish governing her home state? No, I can't imagine most thoughtful people can. She is though good news and thus always welcome on the pages of our newpapers and electronic media. Then again I may be completely off base here but again it is my right under the constitution of this great country to feel the way I do. I will say this, if Palin decides to run she will be doing the Dems a tremendous favor and the rending GOP a possible fatal blow. The GOP knows that they must field a candidate that can carry Dems into the General Elections and they know that Palin won't be able to do that. She will split the party and bring about a loss to the Dems again so it is imperative to the GOP to prevent this from happening. I' afraid "Joe Six Pack" is not going to be crossing the line in numbers sustantial enough to break the Dems hold on the white house. Granted the President is going to have a dog fight on his hands but not against Palin. This is one time that the GOP MUST field the best and the brightest of its party and if it does they will have Palin for lunch in the primaries.

Sarah Palin is so superficial it is ridiculous. I am really concerned that simply b/c some upper brow women do not support her candidacy that she immediately assumes it is b/c of her "class" status. Both woman she is accusing of downing her b/c of her class are seriously old school. More than likely they don't support her b/c she doesn't think before she speaks, her behavior is somewhat irresponsible (especially for a female leader), and here's the big one SHE IS THE MOTHER OF A TEENAGED MOM!!! I think both women have to much class to come out and say that, but I think that is the biggest reason they don't support her. Get over yourself Palin, it's not your class; it's you lack of class.

She is not well educated she is not smart, she said the media said a lot of bad things about her, then she thing she see anything yet, wait until she is running for president. Then she think that was rough, answering Kate Courierquestions. Sarah Palin dont see anything yet she just start. When they really look in her background and realize the mess thet she did create in Alaska as a Governor and with her brother-in law. Sarah did bad with that brother-in law. And I'm sure all her dirty landry will come out for the election. she planning to get in. yeh that is the time she will say she can see washington in Brooklyn. This country cannot let a fool run this world. This is not Alaska. she is so stupid that Alaska had to let her step down because she did not know the paper in Alaska, hey Palin did not read the Alaska paper on her desk? how dum can a Govenor get. Now you so call educated people tell me. She full of chat but nothing behind that chat. Not even common sense Palin have. My five year old can tell me the type of paper that is in New York City.

Sara Palin is the embodiment of 'JoeThePlumber' politics... with the charisma of "lipstick on a pig"... and I am just not buying her brand of "pork". She will destroy the Republican party worse
than George W.

Tea Baggers are nothing more than "Joe The Plumber" politics. America should not
steep like a tea bag in its racially charged and trailer trash brew.

Republicans should be outraged that their
party is being taken over by Tea Baggers.
As much as I am not a Republican and dislike Karl Rove I give them credit for
trying to salvage their party. It is set
to implode in 2012 & produce a fusion ticket.

The Republicans would have fared better by
losing the Mid-terms... now they have to
dance with Tea Baggers and suck up to Dems
to have a workable agenda and restore some
of their Ronald Reagan gusto.

If the Republicans do not stop Sara Palin
and her "Joe Plumber Politcs" they are set to lose bigger than the 2008 elections. You read it here first... The Dems are set up now to take back the HOuse; maintain the Senate and the Presidency in 2012. And,
no Huckleberry or Mitt can stop them...
let alone Palin

Sara Palin, thanks to JOhn McCain, will
be the spoiler and force a fusion ticket
of TeaBagger & Republican. America simply
will not drink that kind of brew to allow
it to be elected into office.

Indeed, let her view Russia from her house. I totally agree with Barbara
Bush and I am not even a Republican.

Wow, big deal, you can type on a newspaper comment board.... You are so superior.... Why dont you quit being a back seat driver, and get out there and run for office, since you are so smart and these people you attack are blithering idiots??

You are so smart and intellectual and they are so ignorant, you should have no problem in debating them, correct?

Oh but you dont have the money to run? Well then I guess these idiots somehow lucked their way into the money, correct?

Because being that "stupid" they couldnt have earned that money..... How on earth did they gain this status??

Maybe if people looked into how their "heroes" of the political realm, actually make their money, and how they gain backing for their finacial support, they might have a better idea of whom they are attacking or supporting...

I.E. How did Obama make money?? Chances are you identify with your candidates of choice.... So your status and situations will reflect your own personal world view...

I see people attacking the tea party, and they obviously have no idea what it is, because, it is not a party with membership, it is Conservatives, which are Republicans, Democrats and Independants, and as you all know it stands for Taxed Enough Already..... Who disagrees with that?

Well to my point, who disagrees with that, that is a hard working, tax paying american??

America is supposed to be about freedom and equality, and equal opportunity... If you are driven , you can rise from poverty to wealth..That is trying to be changed right now. But ALL AMERICANS should pay the same tax rate, and it should be a low one...

The government should only do, what it can within it's means... and our government has abused us citizens for far too long, republican and democratic leadership alike....

So let the chips fall where they may, I am not about parties or personal attacks, I am about policy and what is best for my country and it's citizens......

I will vote for who has the best policies and plans to right this ship, not sink it, no matter what party, or what his or her name, or popularity is, and definately not because my trusted source of media said it is who is best....

Use your brains people, put down the koolaid and put down the hateraid and think for yourselves...

You guys can play politics on your own dime.....

Well the snobbish, so-called "elites" speak their truth as their limited minds see it.

The Bush folks were born into money and power and want to show everyone how wise they are, and how stupid regular folks are. Karl Rove is another of their bunch who think that only the "chosen" ones can speak or govern.

To the nether world with all of these hypocrites and their wives, including Barbara Bush. The people who have done the most harm to the Republican Party are those who agree with the Bush coterie.

Bush cost the House and the Senate the control of their chambers in 2006, when most of our troubles started. He claimed to be a compassionate conservative. Well, he is compassionate only with taxpayers' money – and he surely is not a conservative.

From the Mayo Clinic website:

Reacts to criticism with rage, shame, or humiliation,
Takes advantage of other people to achieve his or her own goals,
Has feelings of self-importance,
Exaggerates achievements and talents,
Is preoccupied with fantasies of success, power, beauty, intelligence, or ideal love,
Has unreasonable expectations of favorable treatment,
Requires constant attention and admiration,
Disregards the feelings of others, lacks empathy,
Has obsessive self-interest,
Pursues mainly selfish goals.

I must admit and applaud Sarah's "internal deliberations" and hope they will lead her to getting the nomination- it will save the contry (from a GOP president, that much is for sure)

For her to say she thinks she could bet Obama illustrates how little she has learned, or is even capable of learning.

I'm beginning to wonder if she is an idiot, a jealous whining shrew, or if she is a manipulative (bleep) OR all of the above. Regardless of which one you choose, her constant insults, her and her daughters loud-mouthed rudeness, their self-perceived, self-enforced sense of entitlement, is getting very, very tiresome.
She may be doing this for attention, just to keep her name in the news, but I hope it backfires on her in a big, big way should she announce that she is going to run for President.
Her constant insults show that she is unstable, that she'd very likely do the same thing to any foreign leader who she doesn't like, to anyone who says something she doesn't like. Sarah Palin, even with her 'communications' degree, has no dignity, no integrity, no tactfulness, no sense of diplomacy.

The biggest difference between Barbara Bush and Palin is that Mrs. Bush makes her barbs measured and accurate; whereas Palin shoots from her hip based solely on adrenalin. Palin scoffs, riducles and mischaracterizes. For example her take on the creation of "Death Panels", and that obesity in the US can be solved if parents are left alone in their judgment as to what to feed their children, and most recently her remarks on "our" ally "North Korea". All of her head-scratching remarks will return to haunt her, if she decides to run for the presidency of the US. Christine O'Donnell has nothing on Palin.

The first to tip his hand was Karl Rove- now Barbara Bush. They are fairly early indicators that the anti-Palin front is bipartisan. The Wall Street- Harvard- Washington axis (the academic liberals and financial industry conservatives) have, behind the scenes, joined forces to stop Palin before crisis events further raise her stock. The view that Obama may- MAY- not be electable in 2012 is shared by Democratic and Republican professionals. If Obama is rendered unelectable by deepening domestic crisis, Palin will gain much more credibility therefore than Romney. Influential Republicans and Democrats are preparing a turnkey campaign for Mayor Bloomberg should a second Obama term become untenable. I personally think the economy will improve and Obama will win against Romney. But, if it does not improve, Bloomberg will be ready to head off a Palin run for the presidency, probably as a Republican nominee with some icon like Colin Powell joining his ticket. If Obama completely fails, he will bring about the bipartisanship he has fruitlessly sought in his first two years- in the form of a stop Palin effort.

Palin is a thin skinned harpy who can dish it out but can't take it. She believes she has the right to smear and demean anyone but God help it if they come back at her. She exploits her whole family but whines when someone else mentions them. She calls Hollywood celebrities names labeling them badly but begs for a reality show so she can cash in on her own celebrity. She calls the President of her country one rotten thing after another and still calls herself patriotic. She just stated that she doesn't belong to any church but is still a Christian and she wants to know why the Obama's don't belong to one particular church. She is too ignorant and unaware of Presidential history in that our recent Presidents have always tried to attend different churches to show their support for all religions. This hillbilly from Alaska who ditched her state as soon as she discovered that nitwits loved her and she could get rich off of them, demeans our nation's President for his hard work as a black man who successfully made his way through Ivy League colleges, excelled in his scholarship, served in the Senate, worked as a constitutional professor, and calls him a "community organizer". This is what the hillbilly from Alaska is all about. She excels in trashing good and decent Americans to promote her own unworthyness of office, but she can't handle the heat herself. She is a phony who only truly wants to be a celebrity, permanently if possible. She is be exploited by Murdock and his Saudi Arabian, Muslim partner as owners of Fox Snooze for their own profits.

Responding to the comment below: William Wallace was a true hero with selflessness and courage, sweetie.. Sarah Palin is a manipulative self- aggrandizing fool who is soon going to run away with her tail between her legs.. but not back to Alaska, undoubtedly since NO ONE there wants her either.. and for damn good reason..

"Did any of those knocking Palin even listen to her response to Laura Ingraham or are you just blocking it out? Amazing what humans are capable of doing to each other. It reminds me of the crowd of people cheering on the execution of William Wallace in Braveheart. Palin is a rising star who has attracted the attention of a lot of people without good attentions who just jump on the bandwagon with those try to shoot her down, on both sides of the political isle.

Yes, the "Tea Party" was an intentional rebranding of the Republican Party, brought to you by the instructed media... because the Bushes took that crippled party to the grave, and its only hope was to re-energize it with a new image.. but.. same old vitriolic mob as the last one.. with a different name.. good luck with that stupid boar you are ridin now. y'all are about to have another really bad fall! and then the Sarah Palin Show will happily end.. thank you God!

She is making a lot of money staying in the news. As much as the media is picked on for being liberal it should be noticed for being intentional as well. Reality TV? It back fired when the cameras showed her family 9 times at the convention. It's been a back peddling spoof since. She was running as VP, not her kids. Tea party, coffee club, beer party, everyone matters & should still have a voice.

Palin is a thin skinned harpy who can dish it out but can't take it. She believes she has the right to smear and demean anyone but God help it if they come back at her. She exploits her whole family but whines when someone else mentions them. She calls Hollywood celebrities names labeling them badly but begs for a reality show so she can cash in on her own celebrity. She calls the President of her country one rotten thing after another and still calls herself patriotic. She just stated that she doesn't belong to any church but is still a Christian and she wants to know why the Obama's don't belong to one particular church. She is too ignorant and unaware of Presidential history in that our recent Presidents have always tried to attend different churches to show their support for all religions. This hillbilly from Alaska who ditched her state as soon as she discovered that nitwits loved her and she could get rich off of them, demeans our nation's President for his hard work as a black man who successfully made his way through Ivy League colleges, excelled in his scholarship, served in the Senate, worked as a constitutional professor, and calls him a "community organizer". This is what the hillbilly from Alaska is all about. She excels in trashing good and decent Americans to promote her own unworthyness of office, but she can't handle the heat herself.

She's dead wrong though though if she thinks the reason she gets so much criticism is because she didn't go to Yale and wasn't born into a political dynasty or wealth.

It's about intelligence, competence, extensive knowledge, the ability to clearly articulate intelligent ideas, and having intelligent ideas in the first place.

You can dress it up; spin it a million and one ways... there just is no escaping the truth that 16 years of Republicans with
Boy Bush and Old Man Cheney at the helm
created the catastrophe that is our economy.

Obama inherited a disaster... and is tryig
every way he can to fix it... He has saved
us from the brink that we were on course for in 2007 & 2008... Now look at us again
with Republicans bank in office to push us
over!!

The American voters... that put in the Republicans and boost an idiot like Sara Palin ... have slipped on a banana peel...

Palin is an absolutely idiot... well almost
and idiot... she manages to milk profits
from numb skull and brain dead conservatives that believe she has the intellect & savvy to run this vast and diverse country. She is laughing all the
way to the bank at all the Tea Baggers and
Republicans that believe in her abilities.... I betcha she even has her bank account number written on the palm of
her hand so she can remember it...

it takes to lead America. Oh, and may I

I just read one of the comments that said basically we've come a long way from the respected and revered administration of Ronald Reagan. Really? Tell that to the thousands of survivors in Central America after his "respected" administration helped our "allies" and others commit unbelievable atrocious and murderous policies in El Salvador, Nicaragua, Panama and Honduras.

Or better yet, how about the Shiites gassed by the thousands in Iraq after Bush I gave Saddam the green light to do so right after the first Gulf war?

How about Clinton's oil-for-food program and sanctions which benefited Saddam immensely but accounted for thousands dying of malnutrition and lack of basic health amenities?

Want more? Bush II denying for years the actual number of innocent Iraqis killed by us during the second Gulf war. The official count just came in recently; over 100,000 dead.

We've come a long way since then? I don't think so. We've never veered off course since the "revered one." Just more of the same by the two corrupt "major" parties.

In the debate on Bush and Palin.To be honest.I don't see much differance between the two.Both are out of tune with the average american.On one hand theres a track record that shows the Bush failure and on the other,failure's to come.Looks more like a class war to gain the high ground and both in my oppinion are bad for the country.A person that has never worried about loseing there home,job,childrens future is a poor choice to deside my,and most americans fate.Bills pased,and deals made in the favor of big business is whats brought this country to its knees.Insted of debating which "wrong choice" is better.We should be thinking how to corect the damage that they have inflicked on this country with there petie self serving dissions.The only soluation i can se is to "CLEAN HOUSE" in Washinton ,and start over with people that puts the american people "FIRST". Its been a long time seance we have seen that in this country.We may never see it.Money and power, greedy leaders, have played there game far too long.Sad thing is there arn't enough people to stand up and say "ENOUGH".Whats it going to take i wonder."RIGHT" does NOT prevale in this country."MONEY" as a rule does.When you let money set the standard,90% are out of the loop in seting any standard.One really sad thing is,There money controls "your"life style.Our founding fathers would turn over in there graves to see where this country has gone in the last 20 years. Now its changed from " FOR THE PEOPLE" to "money makes the rules".Money almost "NEVER" works for the the betterment of all. The more common gole is "self interest among the rich ruling class".What happened to just doing the right thing? How long do we beleave our government is really out for the the best interest of the people.I for one lost faith in our countries leaders long ago.They promise everything and do little.The fight between the parties has been this countries biggest downfall.They vote NO even when its the right thing to do because the wrong party has the idea.To me this says,we have the Wrong people in goverenment.When i was younger there was a movie,"Mr. Smith goes to Washinton".I wonder where that idea of ruling got lost .Were loosing our freedoms and rights under the constution one at a time due to self serving money interest.Something that flashes in my mind is,,we can put a man on the moon,but we can't provide jobs to our citizens to keep there homes.There something really wrong with that picture and we better take a serious look at an answer to it befor its too late.Wake up people,"TOO late" is knocking on the door,RIGHT NOW".

President Obama is regularly called all kinds of names, has his life threatened daily and is the focus of many hate-filled rants calling him everything from a Nazi, Marxist, Leninist, Socialist. illegitimate, usurper, non-American and many others that aren't fit to print. He still manages to keep his head above the fray and do his job. Even the last Bush president did that. Barbara Bush has a right to say anything she pleases and whether you like her politics or not, she was not only married to a president but mother to one to. I think that gives her some credibility too. Sarah Palin will never have the kind of dignity and class of Barbara Bush. I have always thought the Bush women would have made the better presidents though.

But Sarah Palin hasn't learned she isn't still in junior high and responds to anything negative with an insult, especially the sexual ones she likes to throw out anytime a man has anything negative to say. She's opens her mouth and proves she is classless and clueless. I will never understand the thinking of those who think she would be a good president or that she should even be a candidate. Brains and intelligence are just too important for that office to ever put someone like her in it.

If Caroline Kennedy comes out as bitter and mean spirited as Sarah Palin, she will be scrutinized as well. . . . . . . And knowing how the Republicans attack and vilify their oppents, she'll be scrutinized anyway.

The biggest problem with Sarah Palin is that she is a shrew.

Also Palin is always on the pity-pot, "They hate me. What did I do? What's wrong will calling Obama a terrorist or a communist?"

Look at her daughter Bristol, she has the same disease, "The fact that people hate me just motivates me." . . . . . And Bristol stated this after her mother's fans gamed the system to see that she was in the finals of DWTS. All you have to do is look at the mother. “Pity poor me.” . . . and . . . . “If you disagree with me, your un-American, unpatriotic, and a low life communist.”

----------------
Kennedy put her name forward to be appointed New York Senator - way back in 2008 - just wanted to point that out to you because you seem to think this is an active run for office by Kennedy now (which begs the question as to just how politically aware you really are)

And since you are in the "teaparty gamed the system" crowd then you must also be among those who believe that the DWTS audience booed Sarah Palin and not the scores that Derek and Jennifer got right?

Yep. Thought so.

She knows that she did many unethical things as governor and also as mayor of Wasilla (like the multimillion dollar sports complex in the middle of nowhere that our federal tax dollars paid for). She quit because she is trying to run on a conservative platform of fiscal discipline but she as mayor and governor has been anything but fiscally discipline.

Palin was such a lousy Mayor that she was elected Governor.

The poster didn't say that "Babs" was supporting her kids - but that is beside the point because most of the poster wrote is unsubstantiated rumor....like a lot of what YOU wrote.

You reference "banning" books which never happened and is a fiction of those who didn't want her to be elected as Vice to John McCain - it was a claim that was proven false, just like her personally making rape victims pay for their own rape kits.

You "parrot" the author of the article - who took what Palin said out of context to make it a appear a war against not only Palin but the Bushes but also a "class war"...rich against poor.

Palin's comments were in the context of the Republican Party "choosing" the next in line for President instead of allowing the voters through their support prior to election season and then through the primaries.

Her comments about Kennedy were along those same lines - Kennedy had no political experience (compared to Palin's being Mayor and Governor) and Palin wanted to see if the cry of "not experienced" enough was going to be heard from those who made that claim against her during her run for office.

There is a "class" system in politics that chooses the next to be elected....

And funny how most of the financial class war stuff comes from progressives - yet you are also the first ones to complain that middle class Palin is able to make money because of her being placed in the national eye view....typical progressive hypocrisy

mibrooks27, your comments were spot on! Palin tells it like it is. And she won't let anyone get by with a snide remark.

A little story about Barbara Bush:

When her son George started the No Child Left Behind school program, reading programs were stressed in elementary schools.

Schools were spending a small fortune on these "reading programs" such as Reading First.

Barbara Bush and her son Neil (I think he was the son) bought a company that created "reading programs." Her company sold these programs to elementary schools.

Well, Barbara Bush was invited to an elementary school to read to the children. She accepted. Shortly before she was to go to the school to read, she found out they were using another company's program, so she abruptly cancelled.

Another time Barbara Bush said Hilkary Clinton rhymed with the word "witch."

Barbara Bush has always gotten away with demeaning people, I think because she looks grandmotherly.

But now it seems Barbara Bush finally trashed someone who's not going to put up with her bull.

As you wrote "Sara says what most of us think."

What is surprising about Bush’s comment that it was so plainly in bad taste, It might be expected of a Dowd or a Parker, but Barbara Bush? Perhaps the explanation is senility. At any rate, Palin is once again the victim of the peculiar sexism oozing from old or even just aging women, from Barbara Bush to the likes of Maureen Dowd and Kathleen Parker. It is a virulent, poisonous skepticism, entirely born of envy and jealousy, all too familiar to younger successful women, especially vibrant, beautiful, self-confident, self-made, and self-reliant women like Palin.

A fourth grader would tear Palin apart. She can talk and smear decent people incessantly, but she is ignorant. She has no knowledge of American history and for crying out loud, McCain's people had to tell her that Canada is a country and not a state belonging to the USA. She didn't even know the difference between North and South Korea , something someone like you might even know.
Palin will never be our President because she is too poorly educated and too self-absorbed.
What she should do is continue to be a reality show celebrity because that is her real goal, celebrityhood now and forever. She exploits her children and then decries anyone who speaks about them. She smears our President, his wife, Hillary, Pelosi, but God help anyone who calls her on it and proves her wrong.
She is too cowardly to allow herself to be interview by real reporters and people of knowledge, prefering the idjits at Faux News. She's pretty and pretty empty headed and her husband is loving it because he no longer has to work, just hang behind, bring out the Downs kid now and then and then fly off and turn the kids over to the babysitter.
I wonder when she has time to take care of her others kids and monitor them so as not to have another one knocked up. fritz.

Sarah Palins comment about "blue bloods" is very strange. Doesn't she realize that much of her support comes from the blue blood elite which controls this country. Doesn't she understand what makes up her base of support? She is too thin skinned and has no respect for her elders.

If Caroline Kennedy comes out as bitter and mean spirited as Sarah Palin, she will be scrutinized as well. . . . . . . And knowing how the Republicans attack and vilify their oppents, she'll be scrutinized anyway.

The biggest problem with Sarah Palin is that she is a shrew.

Also Palin is always on the pity-pot, "They hate me. What did I do? What's wrong will calling Obama a terrorist or a communist?"

Look at her daughter Bristol, she has the same disease, "The fact that people hate me just motivates me." . . . . . And Bristol stated this after her mother's fans gamed the system to see that she was in the finals of DWTS. All you have to do is look at the mother. “Pity poor me.” . . . and . . . . “If you disagree with me, your un-American, unpatriotic, and a low life communist.”

Here you go again. You refer to anyone who doesn’t agree with you as brainless, uneducated, or an idiot. Whether you like or dislike Sarah Palin, she IS a force to be reckoned with. She at least has the guts to stand for what she believes. As for Barbara Bush, I always have, and still do have great respect for the lady. After George H. W. Bush left the Presidency she stated, during an interview, that she didn’t always agree with her husband’s decisions or opinions on some issues but, her duty was to stand by and support him. This is a lady of great character. I do, however feel that her comment about Sarah Palin was uncharacteristically inappropriate.

Sarah Palin took a break from her book tour Wednesday to call into Glenn Beck's radio show and weigh in on the recent shelling of a South Korean island by the North Korean military. Unfortunately, a verbal slip-up caused her to urge the U.S. to support an unexpected country.

"But obviously, we've got to stand with our North Korean allies." Palin said in her analysis, before being corrected by the show's co-host. "Yeah. And we're also bound by prudence to stand with our South Korean allies, yes."


~~~

Now we know why Barbara Bush wants her to stay in Alaska. It's not because Barbara Bush considers herself to be a arrogant Blue Blood, or anything like that.

It's because, Bush truly believes that Palin and her Tea Bagging supporters are just plain old, down and out IGNORANT.

And I could not agree more with B. Bush on this one.

mibrooks27, your comments were spot on! Palin tells it like it is. And she won't let anyone get by with a snide remark.

A little story about Barbara Bush:

When her son George started the No Child Left Behind school program, reading programs were stressed in elementary schools.

Schools were spending a small fortune on these "reading programs" such as Reading First.

Barbara Bush and her son Neil (I think he was the son) bought a company that created "reading programs." Her company sold these programs to elementary schools.

Well, Barbara Bush was invited to an elementary school to read to the children. She accepted. Shortly before she was to go to the school to read, she found out they were using another company's program, so she abruptly cancelled.

Another time Barbara Bush said Hilkary Clinton rhymed with the word "witch."

Barbara Bush has always gotten away with demeaning people, I think because she looks grandmotherly.

But now it seems Barbara Bush finally trashed someone who's not going to put up with her bull.

As you wrote "Sara says what most of us think."

Barbara Bush comes from money as she married George HW Bush to join the money as one. Sarah is a trash wannabe who is milking people for money in hopes of being a blue blood. Sarah's biggest problem is she's stupid and thinks North Korea is a US allie as she said on Glenn Becks show. Sarah is a Mother who lets her girls run wild and disowned her son who had a choice of jail or Military. Todd is not working and the Family lives off of Sarah's fake book sales and her hate speeches.

Mrs. Bush slammed Palin with class. Two sincere compliments moving seamlessly into a devastatingly simple remark. She employed only a few well chosen words which made you think about all the things you don't trust about a media maven like Palin, without actually getting her hands filthy. Palin responds like Sonny Corleone, all froth and blazing guns, speaking half backwards, picking a fight with a republican first lady. How did The Real World on MTV become our actual world?

SP's constant insulting of everyone she doesn't like, of people who don't like her and her family, of people who make her look like the ignorant fool she is............is getting really old and tiresome.

Members of this mindless mob who attack Sarah Palin with the blind hatred endemic to their ilk, are not singling out Palin; they attack any Republican woman equally in their equally Pavlovian manner. Palin just happens to be the Republican woman of the hour. I don't know if I'd want Palin as our president, necessarily, but I like and respect her more and more for not going completely postal with these vermin-with-a-voice. She just smiles them down.

Can you imagine Palin as President doing diplomacy and protocol? Actually, I take that back. Remember how in late Oct. 2008 she flirted over the phone with that Canadian DJ pretending to be Sarkozy?

Palin again was on-target with her "blue-blood" remark about Barbara Bush. It takes a person with good character and a large amount of common sense and political skill to be a good POTUS. A pedigree or an Ivy-League sheepskin is worth zilch if that's all one has to offer in consideration for being elected POTUS. I give you Harry Truman as a good example of the type of person who makes a good POTUS while lacking pedigrees and sheepskins of distinction.

Palin appears to be trying to divide the nation into two camps -- Intellectuals (as she sees them) vs. non-intellectuals (aka Joe 6-packs and hockey moms) -- by distinguishing between those who received a sound college education at a respectable institution of higher learning (although not necessarily benefiting from the experience, as is evidenced in GWB) vs. those who either didn't pursue a higher degree or attended "Hillbilly U" and majored in "Comunikashun and Jernulism Studies".

Her thesis seems to be that the less formal education you receive and the more ignorant you are about the details of the important issues impacting the nation, the better qualified you are to make the big decisions required by the POTUS.

Barbara Bush's comment was interesting considering that her most nefarious son, Jeb, would love to make the Bush family trifecta of the Presidency. Then He would work hard to privatize the entire nation to the lowest bidder hile he garnered the biggest return for hisself.

In true tea-party style and with no grace, Sarah Palin has opted to characterize Barbara Bush's statement by labeling Barbara Bush as a "blue blood." I think that Barbara Bush would be the last person to think of herself in such a way. However, the once-upon-a-time beauty contestant who would aspire to such a lineage has proved yet again how thin her skin really is.

Let's get this straight. Sarah sees no need to be interviewed by Katie Couric again. She is now essentially writing off a key family in Republican politics.

What we are seeing is truly a political lightweight in action. It is really too bad that all she has to offer is a pretty appearance. Based on a comment that Bristol made at the DWS finale, it seems that the fruit did not fall too far from the tree. No real class in this family from Alaska. There are some really nice people up there, and they have some real class.

“The Democrats are total morons for not finding their own hot mama before the Republicans did so first, or maybe I should have left off the qualifiers and called it straight: the Democrats are just plain morons, at least where women are concerned. The right wing, for whatever weird reason, has been much more receptive to outrageous and attractive female commentators who are varying degrees of insane or inane, but in any case are given a platform on Fox News and at their conservative confabs. Look at how great life has been for Megyn Kelly and Laura Ingraham and the assorted lesser lights.”

Also, since "Palin also suggested that the Bushes upper-class status had contributed to "the economic policies that were in place that got us into these economic woeful times" then I presume that she wants to kill the Bush tax cuts that favor people with 'upper-class status' since she thinks they're so bad for the economy.

Palin has more experience than George W. Bush did when he won the nomination.

Bush had been Texas governor for two years. Palin has been Alaska governor for a year and a half, mayor of Wasilla, and Vice Presidential nominee in 2008.

Palin has attended more universities than Dubya. Dubya only went to Yale and Harvard, but Palin transferred universities and majors up to five times. She has a broader educational experience than Dubya.

This is a family who wants instant gratification with her PR husband with a high school education, her oldest son with no higher education and her oldest daughter with a young child and having no higher education. Instead, she appears on dancing with the stars to gain a quick dollar.

Please do not report on this circus. Please drive them out of town. Barbara Bush is right, stay in Alaska.

America is supposed to set an example for the rest of the world. We cannot have an idiot running the country and lose more respect around the world. CNN and Cable are viewed internationally.

This entire discourse in this Country right now against the President, it is truly sickening. Preventing the ratifying of the Treaty, the stopping of unemployment benefits, no matter what President Obama the hatred for him from McConnell and Bohener is shameful and unAmerican.
This is the President of the United States, and the GOP, the Tea Party have decided to prevent, block and deny any legislation, any proposals, any treaties, any efforts at all to Govern this great Nation be blocked.
The fact Federal judges over 24 of them cannot get an up or down vote, the GOP is not governing, they are not representing the people, the continuing funding of the government is at risk any day now, total mayhem is what the GOP and Tea Party want.
I have never seen such outright disrespect, such disdain and such lack of regard for a President in my entire life.
This is not what the mandate of the American People was in the midterms, if you recall the American Public had the lowest regard for Congress, not the President.
As for the TSA very simple, you don't want to go through the scan, you don't want the pat down, knowing full well these lunatics put bombs in their shoes and underwear and dress up as old ladies, you want to put Americans at risk?
Beck does not offer one solid concrete solution to jobs.
Malkin does not offer one single solitary program to help create jobs.
Coulter does not offer one specific as to putting Americans back to work.

Yale and Harvard graduates have been President since Ronald Reagan (Eureka,ILL)left office in January 1989.

Bush I Yale
Clinton Yale/Yale
Bush II Yale/Harvard
Obama Columbia/Harvard

They're all part of the same club.

How have our IVY presidents done?
I think not very well.

In most elections, both parties ran IVY graduates against one another so there was no non-IVY choice:

1988 Bush I(Yale)vs
Dukakis (Swarthmore/Harvard)
1992 Bush I (Yale) vs Clinton (Yale)
2000 Bush II (Yale/Harvard) vs
Gore (Harvard)
2004 Bush II (Yale/Harvard)
vs. Kerry (Yale)

In the 26 years since 1984, Bob Dole and John McCain were the only non-Ivies nominated by Dems or Republicans. Both beaten by IVIES.

So much for diversity.

Of course, Sarah Palin will run against all the IVY blue bloods and will beat them. People are fed up with all of them, both Dems and Republicans.

IVIES crashed the economy on Wall Street and their IVY brothers in DC bailed them out.

So, by all means IVIES, unite to fight Palin. The country is watching you. The more the IVIES in both parties that fight Palin, the more they look alike.

One thing I'm certain of, I'm not voting for another IVY for Pres.
The rest of the country deserves a time at bat.
Sarah, hit one for the Gipper!

I am no fan of Barbara Bush, or any of the Bushes, for that matter, but Palin is clearly off her meds (and doesn't she always seem a tad hyperactive?) The celebutard 15-minute governor shows that she has no class -- and I'm not using that in the oh-so-viictimized sense that poor, laughing-all-the-way-to-the bank Sarah means it.

Sara, keep it. Dumb is not requirement for public office (tho it seems to be lately.)

I am truly amassed that after the utter cluelessness of the last administration, the American public hasn't learned the difference between intelligence and stupidity.

In many of the other Washington Post blogs I read with frustration the number of people who think just because they said Pres Obama was dumb that it was true. "If I yell loud enough I can convince you of my argument." "If I make some clever 'cute' remark, my put-down is going to intimidate you."

So Sara, keep it up. We will get tired of listening to you and then you can get back to Wasilla to become an every day mom.

Palin would have done better to keep her mouth shut and show some respect.

Even her Bristol had disrespectful words for the American People as a result of her 3rd place finish on DWTS.

Instead of thanking those who supported Bristol, even though Bristol has no talent whatsoever, Bristol used the moment to give the American People a show of her middle finger.

It's ok to try to be a champion for the little guy, but how about some class to go with it.

An excellent point. Republicans are very good at smashing candidates and even those just considering a run, using lies, half truths and in Palin's case, a lot of the truth. This last election she helped in some ways so she was left alone, but if she starts making dictates to the neo-cons and republican power base, and they want her out, she will be out.

She should not underestimate the evil within the republican party, its benefactors and allies. And maybe, just maybe, Barbara has set the tone for what is to come. Funny how this happens right after Palin says she might run in 2012. Too bad ... she might have had a chance in 1012.

As usual, there is just enough truth in what Sarah Palin says to keep me from laughing....outloud.

It's funny really: Bush 41 was, arguably the most qualified person ever elected as President.

But he said "read my lips" in an effort to get elected and then saddled us with debt, having no clue the 1992 election was about "the economy, stupid" and his deficit spending.

I've always like Barbara Bush. She has always acted the lady.....except for this.

The Bush's were, in fact, blue bloods. And it was an impediment to success for both 41 and 43.

Anyone who doubts that there's much difference between DWTS and a presidential election in the US must be kidding oneself. First, watch how #41 pitched his Jeb to be a future US president makes you wonder whether a US presidency is an entitlement (like a kingship or dictatorship) that can be passed down from generation to generation. Then, once Jeb managed to nominated by his party, he automatically has a good chance of winning, like Bristol did.

I always have some respect for #41, if nothing else but just for his ability to know his own limits (his son doesn't have it), but he and Barbara have no legitimacy in criticizing other politician, even Palin, just because they didn't say anything critical about the little monster they together created.

Barbara Bush should have kept her mouth shut. Her political opinion is of no consequence. Neither is that of Bush41. hey are irrelevant, except to Karry King.

Bush41 was just slightly better at the job than Jimmy Carter. But not ny much! His political savy was overrated and as he proved, an unknown Arkansas governor beat the stuffing out of him solely on the basis of oratory ability!

That was before the Economy crashed and Palin and the Tea Bagger's just recently found out that they were never really a part of the Blue Bloods.

And now, Palin has a ghost writer that can write books for her to sell, a spot on FIXED news, a reality t.v. show, a daughter who was on a reality t.v., show in hopes of becoming one of the Blue Bloods.

Sarah Palin is such a narcissist that she cannot let ANYTHING go by. The smart thing to do would have been to shrug off the Bush comment, but no, Sarah has to snark back, thus ensuring that the comment would play for another week. Not smart. Not classy. More like middle school mean girls.

The problem with the teabagging palin-istas is they refuse to talk to anyone. This is because they cannot stand the light of reality or truth from anyone who contests their idiotic statements in a public forum. What's the problem with that, you ask? Well, last time I checked, this is a Democracy, one where ideas and platforms are debated in the sphere of openness, and not from behind the mouthpieces of liars, hoaxters, and fear-mongerers at faux news, and the golden microphone of the EIB. Eventually, the teabag and repubic party statements will be challenged in public, and no amount of hiding from truth will allow Palin or anyone else from hiding from it. The teabaggers and repubics will eventually learn from their shamed hero Joe McCarthy, who learned this in a pretty hard slap in the face, dying alone, a bitter, empty man.

It matters not where Obama was born he never can be a natural born citizen, based on the citizenship of his father.

Jus soli does not establish citizenship if the parents are not US citizens.

The 14th amendment added "subject to the juristiction" If you are born in the US and your parents are foreigners you are not a US citizen. If one parent is a foreigner...you are not a citizen.

This courts have ruled this. Hamdi was born in the US whose parents were Saudis.

Justice Scalia called him a "presumed citizen".

Chief Justice Story: the childred assume the national character of their parents.

Chief Justice Story said a child takes on the national character of their parents.

Obama is clearly not a natural born citizen..Sarah Palin is a natural born citizen.

Our country can perpetuate with Sarah.

Bar has always spoken her mind, nothing new here. Unfortunately, the Republican party has become more and more to the right of center, Palin appeals to these uneducated working class folks who have deserted the Democrats. These folks are easily influenced by Palin, Rush, Hannity and Beck whom all lack any intellect.

Bar also would like to see her other son, Jeb become President, therefore she wants to get rid of potential competition for Jeb in 2012 or 2016. The Bush family feels they have a divine right to occupy the White House. We do not need another Bush or Clinton in the White House.

Obama is just too intellectual which is why he is misunderstood. At least he kept the country from falling into a full blown depression. Granted some of the methods used to avoid a depression are abhorrent to the free enterprise system.

Many Democrats like me who are to the left of center found the stimulus, auto bailouts and TARP (Bush program) an evil necessity.

Frankly, I agree with many of the proposals from the deficit reduction commission appointed by the President Once the working class tea partner’s find out some of these recommendations will affect Medicare and Social Security they will immediately run back to the Democratic Party.

She's not smart enough or organized enough to manage her way out of a wet paper bag, and yet she's managed to manipulate her way into a cushy "Faux News" job (hey, anybody actually watch the "shows" she does?), she gets her one daughter on another show on another network, she "posts" constantly on FaceBook, she's supposedly written two books, she's in our faces 24/7. And I don't think she's doing much of any of it -- there's obviously someone behind her who has been looking for a long time for an empty vessel who is gullible enough to parrot what she's told to parrot. Who is the power behind the throne? Cheney? Rove? Whoever has taken over the Machiavellian position that the Hunt brothers used to occupy? Whoever it is, I don't trust them and I don't trust her.

I see the money from the Grizzly Sow is already starting to flow based on the number of comments here. For the uninformed there is no such thing as a "mama grizzly" it is a grizzly sow or sow grizzly. It's kind of like refudiate, no such thing, manufactured by an ignorant albeit cunning manipulator. In other words, she's just makin' stuff up. And the Sow Grizzly isn't Governor Nothing. She didn't even serve a full term, she quit, couldn't hack it especially when Rupert was calling. So if you are going to use "governor" in relation to speaking of the Grizzly Sow, ex half term governor would be the only correct application.

As for Barbara Bush's comment? She if right on the mark and in case you need a translation she is saying the Grizzly Sow is qualified by age and citizenship only. Kind of like what Farmer Joe said before Todd bxtch slapped him.

If anyone is wondering where in the world is Jake, he is on the ADN forums making a pest of himself trying to rationalize Joe "The Sleaze" Miller's pathetic attempts to subvert the election and not concede.

Mrs Barbara Bush is right. The Palins are a bunch of uncultured country bumpkins hillbillies. They have no impressive education, no social class, no cultural fine taste, no decent family pedigree. They are a bunch of stinking trash as the Mrs Bush rightly agrees.

Compared that to President Obama who has consistently scored excellent grades in his Ivy League education, has tremendous fine things in life and unparalleled family upbringing. President Obama and the two Presidents Bushes even play better golf than the those Hillbillies Palins. Civilised people like us and Mrs Bush hold more than one golf country clubs while those country bumpkins hillbillies would never have touched even one single golf club in their entire sickening pathetic miserable lives.

People like Mrs Bush and us are highly educated, highly cultured, highly civilized, highly developed, well-born, well-nurtured and well-bred should never be allowed to be led by those Wasilly trash. America is the land Of the Best, By the Best, and For the Best. We and the highly respectable Bush family simply represent the Best and those filthy trash like the Palins are simply the worst.

America has become such a great country because we have never allowed cheap serfs like those Wasilly Hillbilly ever become our leaders. India becomes a great civilisation because they keep those uncultured Untouchables caste at the bottom of the society. We should continue to follow the great foot-steps of our Indian mentors to suppress those untouchable Wasilly Hillbilly at the very bottom of our feet forever.

The Bush family are a bunch of frauds and liars.

Laura Bush walked out of her closet a few months ago proclaiming that she has been a great supporter of gay marriage. Where was she hiding in 2000-2008 when her husband was using the gay marriage issue to demonise the gay community and agitate the social conservatives to vote for him? Why didn't Laura Bush speak up then when she could have done something to fight for her belief, and not now when she is totally irrelevant and insignificant?

This is an act of betrayal not only to the conservatives, but most important of all, but also to the gay community. The Bushes have deliberately and systematically polarized the nation on the gay marriage issue, publicly saying one thing but privately admitting exactly the opposite. They have brutally demonised the gay community while despicably lied and agitated the conservatives into hysteric frenzy just for the sake of their very, very selfish politcal survival.

The Bush family: Like father like son; like mother like daughter; like brother like sister. They always say what they don't mean, and always mean what they don't say.

You "stayed the course" with George Bush for 8 years through two failed wars resulting in overwhelming death totals, an absence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, mounting deficits, and excessive tax cuts for the wealthy that did not generate the jobs the nation still needs. You refuse to give President Obama, who has been in office 22 months, the respect and cooperation you threw at the feet of your Reagan and Bush gods. This is despite a healthy stock market,an improving auto industry and firm dates for exits from the Mid-East wars among other accomplishments.Give him the chance he deserves!

As a retired grandfather, a Progressive, a political Independent, an Environmentalist, a fiscal Conservative, and social Realist, I may seem an odd mix for those caught up in the current divisive, polarized world of ultra-conservative versus ultra-liberal politics. Even more perplexing is my encouragement for Sarah Palin to be the Republican nominee for President in 2012. Consider also that I view the B movie "Idiocracy" as a truly satirical look at where this country may have already crossed the point of no return.

A Palin candidacy will put to a vote in the US: reason over absurdity, literacy over propaganda, truth over fiction, science over superstition, the future of our country over "Dark Ages" mentality. If you misread, Palin is definitely on the negative side of these issues and leader of that mob mentality. One could view this lack of intellectual thought as the undereducated, the racist, the angry, the paranoid, and the manipulated in terms of either the majority or minority in the US. An Obama versus Palin election would be revealing to us and the world as to the future hope or eventual demise of this country. Texas Cynic

Barbara Bush sometimes has a "barbed", acid tongue. She can be quite mean and to the point, fearlessly expressing her opinions. Maybe she should go home and stay in Houston or wherever she is stying. I never liked her and I am a staunch Republican. I could never understand why she was so popular as first lady.

Barbara Bush will not get her wish--as long as what Sarah Palin attacks as "lamestream media" stop featuring her day-in and day-out, she is not only laughing all the way to the bank but will run for the White House.

I look forward to voting for Gov. Palin in 2012.

Bush/Clinton/Bush/Obama:
They all love one-sided "Free Trade" deals which have caused our factories to move to the third-world countries and our white collar jobs to be outsourced.

Obama is all for globalization, NAFTA, and CAFTA contrary to his campaign speeches.

Gov. Palin and the Tea Party will bring common sense reforms to Trade negotiations, immigration, spending, the deficit, and national security.

I never really liked the "Barb." She always seems to be the biatch. However, I have to agree with her on this one. The people in Alaska deserve Palin, just like the people of Nevada deserve Reed and Arizona, McCain.

None of these people should be in politics. They are a curse upon the whole country.

We haven't considered that she may run as the Tea Party candidate. They became a viable party this year and whatever we think about the Tea Party it should at least generate a warm fuzzy about our nations ability to allow voices to be heard. A Tea Party candidate for president if it were true would be the Republicans greatest nightmare. They just got a huge dose of it a few weeks ago. You have wonder about values though...what if Sara Palin looked like Harriet Miers?

I saw this in another article on the WP site, about Sarah Palin:

"Palin’s purpose for being at Fox on Nov. 2 was to share her views on the midterm elections......her young son, Trig, was to have an operation — routine but still worrisome — on the Friday before Election Day."


What..................?
Their youngest son had an operation a few days before the election, and instead of staying home to take care of him like the perfect parents she says they are, Sarah and Todd fly to NY to be on Faux News?

Sarah & Todd are in NY to gab about how
'they' influenced the election results, Bristol is in CA on Fake Dancing with the Stars..........so who's taking care of the other kids? The next wannabe teen mom and reality show 'star'....foul-mouthed 16 year old Willow?

Arent't their priorities just a bit out of whack there? The election is much more important to Sarah and Todd, than their disabled son's health?

She will not run because she is having a larger effect being what she is now. Another factor is the money, she will make more on the road than as the leader of the country. The same reason that Russ will never run for public office.
The libs are more afraid of her as a spokeswoman than as president. They want her to run but they will never get their wish.

While I have great admiration for Barbara Bush, I thought her comment was a cheap shot unbecoming to her. I'm sure she doesn't appreciate comments about her son staying in Crawford.

Palin may be in the primaries for president, but she will not likely be the nominee. She has charm and influence, but lacking in gravitas. If she were the nominee she would have an almost impossible hill to climb to win the presidency against the Obama political machinery and money. The liberal talking heads would tear her apart limb by limb, mocking her all the way, whereas they would exault and praise Obama to high heavens.

Sorry, GOP, you set Palin in motion so now you have to live with the consequences. And Barbara Bush is nothing but an arriviste who thinks she's a member of an aristocracy. Unfortunately for her the name "Bush" no longer has brand-name appeal. Except maybe on cans of baked beans.

I have no doubt Palin will run, and if the recent elections are any indication, it will cause lots of turmoil in the GOP. This will be good for the Democrats, who don't know how to wield power even when they have it; they'll be able to prosper through inadvertance, which seems to be the approach that comes naturally to them.

I'm a little sick and tired of the "Sarah Palin Show" in the news and news magazines. It is bad enough we had to put up with Obama/Pelosi/Reid and their treasonous '06/'08 Congressional Variety Show.

Has anyone told Sarah Palin that in real elections, votes aren't counted by the use of fake emails nor by repeated robotic telephone calls, like she's expecting people to do for her daughter on Fake Dancing with the Stars?


The 'internal deliberations' she's working on, probably has something to do with trying to figure out how to keep the media reporters from asking her questions to which she has to give an educated response. Or how to run for President by only allowing the 'entertainment' reporters to interview her so she can use her 'golly gee', 'you betcha', say it ain't so, Joe' typical rambling answers.

If she thinks the 'invasion of privacy', the dissection of every word she's ever spoken, the discovery and mass-reporting of every past action in her and her family's life was bad during her failed VP campaign..........just wait til she finds out how much harder the media will be on her if she announces she wants to run for President. She won't be able to be on Faux news using the 'B' word anymore, nor will Bristol and Willow be allowed to get by with their Facebook insults.

Go ahead, Sarah Palin, run for President. Your 'campaign' will last all of about one month until you have the very public meltdown I have been waiting for you to do. Then maybe you'll finally shut up and go away in embarassment of your own hypocritical conduct.

It looks like our own political Ma Barker doesn't want competition. Have you noticed how all of her sons are crooks, all entangled in huge, multi-billion dollar scams and swindles of one kind or another?

Did you know who the family was that was their longest-supporters? The Hinkleys. Yup, the goofs sacrificed their own son so Daddy Bush could assume the presidency, but Reagan survived.Another very long-term friend of the Bush Family? The bin Laden family, who were flown out of the United States safely, while we United States citizens, were grounded, frozen in place by Bush.

It is time for investigations into the nefarious activities of the Bush Crime Family, from the dalliance with the Nazis to their complicity in the staggering frauds and ripoffs, the massive lootings of the treasury we saw in the last 20 years of Reagan and the Bush Boys.

Barbara clearly does not want to see Sarah rain on Jeb's parade.

Those who think that a Palin presidency isn't in the cards because she could never win the general election should read this article. It lays out a very plausible scenario where, if a strong third-party candidate emerges and wins the electoral votes of at least one state (not far-fetched if Bloomberg decides on a third-party run), the newly elected Republican House of Representatives will be picking our next president for us and -- tah dah -- Sarah Palin wins

It would appear that the GOP is done with Sarah, and with Michele Bachmann. They have a new "crown princess" in the House leadership, and lately, its only Fox that keeps Sarah on, and they are dissing her in leaked videos.
Poor Alaska, they don't want her either (ask Joe Miller), but they are going to get her back, I think.

I"m sorry but as conservative as I am, I don't see how anyone could vote for Palin as President after the katie Couric interview. I see they NY Times has an article today that sites that she has an 80% "favorable rating" among Republicans. They use this to illustrate that Palin is a prime contender in the next election. No where does the article mention if the "favorable rating" is for a Presidential candidate. In fact the Poll went something like this "As I read a name, please say if you have a favorable or unfavorable opinion of them". I might have a favorable opinion of Larry King but please don't take that to imply that I want him for my president.

Having voted FOR him, I believe that I'm qualified to critique George HW Bush's presidency.

He didn't deserve to be president... and if Reagan hadn't made him his VP, Bush41 would never have won the presidency.

Bush41 is credited with the successful rejection from Kuwait of Saddam Hussein. Yet if it hadn't been for UK 's Maergart Thatcher, Bush41 would never have had the guts to put the coalition together to defeat the Iraqis. This was evident from Bush41's initial reaction to the events before Thatcher rushed to Washington to put some guts into Bush41!

Bush41 made a 'no new taxes" pledge and broke it as soon as the Democrats started playing hardball with him!

Lanche,

Yea right. I'm tired of Republicans. It was all a nice puppet show. Foolish elderly Republican voters actually think that Republicans are going to repeal the Heath Care Reforms and ban earmarks and bring "freedom" back.

Republicans rally against regulation of industry, and then America sees how that turns out when BP spills a million barrels of oil in our seas.

Republicans will rally against gay people, stripping them of civil rights, and then you find them tapping their toes in airport bathrooms looking for their gay lovers.

Republicans will rally against non-existent communists but have no problem driving an economy with Karl Marx like spending of tax dollars on endless wars against enemies that did not attack us.

After the last ten years of watching Republicans one word stands out as defining them perfectly; hypocrite.

People in government should believe in government, and that's exactly why Democrats will get my votes for years to come.

We do need a government that governs the least. The tea party actually is going to bring sense to an arena where the thinking is so backwards it is killing our Country. It is time for the People to get involved in this Country again. When the government over reaches its design its time for the people to correct its course. The election proved that and its time for overspending liberals to change their ways or be left in the dust. Government needs a downsize big time. People whine about how corporations have ruined our Country. The government is the actual force that is negating growth and our success as a Country. They provide nothing for the most part in the way of bringing growth to a stagnant economy.

Awe the Queen of the Tea Party in a fight with the queen of the Silver Spoon Warmongers? How lovely.........Please.

The tea Party never existed. It was a propaganda campaign to rally the disaffected Republicans.

The media was paid to say "Tea Party" instead of saying "Republican" and in doing so created a new "brand" that was not tainted by the failure and incompetence of the Republican Party.

I can just picture Republicans sitting in front of their computers with some angry Fox news or Rush blaring in the background while they seethe over every bit of good news that finds its way in to the information sources they perceive as loyal to their misconceived caricatures of reality.

There are people who vote for people that call themselves conservatives but really what you get is a bunch of theocrats who try to consolidate money and power to an elite group of ideological zealots who are willing to commit intense acts of hypocrisy simply to feel as if they have "won", like it's all some kind of game.

These toe tapping tools will stop at nothing to force your children learn myth in science classrooms such as ID or that the Earth was made 6000 years ago. These Republicans will vow that gays should not be able to live as non-gays do in our country, while simultaneously being gay in the closet. These people like to hate things. Fighting is what feels normal. These people are angry and angry people are easily exploited.

If you prefer a government that governs the least that's exactly what you are going to get. I don't believe there can be an intelligent debate with Republicans. Republicans don't want to talk, they just want to be mad about something and government is an easy target. During the Bush days, the hacks were mad at Saddam; for the wrong reasons but it didn't stop them from exploiting the people into supporting a two trillion dollar tax payer funded unjust war did it? 4000 Americans and 100,000 (and counting) innocent Iraqi civilians died. Republican leaders said, "hey be mad at this", now they are saying, "hey be mad at this".

The fatalistic tragedians of our nation fall in line. The only thing we are conservative with is the use of our intelligence and the application of ethics.

It’s time to end the hypocrisy of the Republican Party. Rise up Democrats!

Wow, it looks as if there is a real battle shaping up in the Republican party over Sarah Palin's ambitions (as if there were any doubt about her plans to run in 2012).

But before the Democrats sit back and laugh over what they might think is purely a Republican problem, they should remember that Palin has Fox News on her side. Murdoch's propagandists will see to it that any Republican who dissents from the Palin party line is quickly whipped into shape.

In 2012, the WP will probably be running a story on Barbara Bush's endorsement of Palin for president.
